Dubai — Desert Cubs Cricket Academy has announced its partnership with Dubai Duty Free (DDF), a Press release said.

Executive Vice Chairman of DDF, Colm McLoughlin, said: “We are proud to support the initiative of Desert Cubs Cricket Academy for nurturing young generation of players through participation in various sporting activities that will keep them physically fit to maintain a healthy lifestyle.”

Desert Cubs Cricket Academy has also spread its wings in developing youngsters in others sports such as badminton, swimming, athletics and rugby among others.

As an academy, Desert Cub shares a similar interest in supporting sporting talent and under the leadership of its founder, Presley Polonnowita, who has been instrumental in developing cricketing talent to represent the UAE national teams for the past 6-7 years.

In 2014 alone, the academy produced six girls who represented the UAE women’s cricket team and five boys who won junior national honours. The academy’s upcoming tour to Brisbane, Australia, in July for a series of matches with local Australian junior teams will be the first of its kind undertaken by a Cricket School in the Gulf.

Desert Cubs Cricket Academy is a registered academy in the UAE and currently conducts its coaching sessions in Dubai and Sharjah.
